Exploring Christian Theology Review

Exploring Christian Theology Vo. 1, by Michael J. Svigel and Nathan D. Holsteen, explores the theological topics of the divine inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture, and the Trinity.  If you are looking for light reading, this isn't it!  But I loved delving deeper into these doctrines of the Christian faith.

The book is split into two sections, one for the divine inspiration of Scripture, and one for the doctrine of the Trinity.  Each section is further divided into chapters that are written by different authors, including sections on passages of Scripture to master, dangers to avoid, principles to put into practice, and recommendations for further reading.

Everything in this book seemed to be really biblically accurate and doctrinally sound.  There was one sentence (I believe in a quote) that referenced the idea of the perpetual virginity of Mary, which is not biblically based, but the authors didn't take a stance on that one way or another - everything else seemed to be spot-on.

This book will keep you thinking, and though I had to hurry to finish it so I could post this review, I think that it would be a great resource for further study.  I also loved that they gave resources for further reading related to each of the topics they discussed, so if you are interested in digging deeper into either of these topics, it sets you up perfectly for that.

I think it is always good to come back to the cores of our beliefs as Christians, and this book covers these first two topics beautifully.  If you are interested in studying theology, I think this book is good resource to use to start.

Note: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
